Browsing

I am having trouble with my blog at the moment. Text and arrangement surely is not right. Hopefully can solve it soon.

Dai Ban Noodle is another new hidden joint that we recently discover, that this outlet had been operating for quite a while already. The only thing is I seldom drive pass the back area which is the Wondermilk stretch till friend mention that why not give it a try.

dai ban (4)

Food selection here is pretty interesting as the shop name noodles gave me the impression that they going to serve lots of types of noodle but its a good mixture, find that their Pan mee would be their signature.

dai ban (7)

We did quite order a number of drinks that night, with many using fresh ingredient especially passion fruit series that caught my attention with lemon and asam.

dai ban (8)

Dry chili with shrimp here is good as we just ate it like that and very aromatic to go along with noodle and not spicy. Next to it is sambal here is definately will give you extra kick as its homemade and spicy enough to make you sweat

dai ban (9)

We order some starter to start with. As this was serve, Salted Egg Squid smells very good with the trail of salted egg left along and no doubht that it taste as good as it smells. Cripsy with golden brown crust outside that fried to perfection. RM 11.90

dai ban (14)

Crunchy Prawn Roll @ RM7.90

dai ban (15)

Smoked Duck is price @ RM 8.90 and I would say its cheap. At that kind of price it give me doubht on the quality of it and the dish itself proves me wrong. The taste of smoked is strong, just the way I like it. Recommended

dai ban (10)

Dai Ban Pork Burger, find that the patty is a bit peppery as no doubt its thick and juicy top with cheese and dark charcoal bun, accompanied by the crispy golden wedges on the side. Not the best I have come across as it can be further improve on the taste. @ RM 15.90

dai ban (11)

dai ban (12)

Traditional Handmade Dai Ban Mee is one of the signature in the outlet for the handpeel series. @ RM 6.50

dai ban (13)

dai ban (16)

This is one of the dish that capture my attention instantly when I was browsing thru Claypot Pumpkin & Pork Rib Congee @ RM10.90. Serve pippin hot in claypot with golden yellow texture and I must say this is one of the winner in the outlet. Very soft and smooth congee, with little sweet end aromatic and pork ribs pairs well. – Recommended

dai ban (17)

One of the highly recommended by me would be Lemon Grass Pork Chop with Fried Rice @ RM 12.90. Pork chop cook to perfection that its not too hard yet season to fragrant and soft and they are quite generous with it as the pork chop is pretty huge. Fried rice pairs well with it. I must say its one of the simple dish I have come across.

Right after our dinner, few doors away is this yogurt stall is super pack with humans, as when I first arrive it had already attracted my attention to join along the crowd to try out what is so special about this Moochi Frozen Yoghurt  place. My friend had never understand what is the whole buzz about whenever he come and dine at his favorite Korean BBQ food at Bassim.

Moochi (1)

As a tourist, of course I would keen to try on any food. During winter time its quite a good crowd despite yogurt is cold and many people are still keen to get brain freeze. I jump onto the queue and my friend scolded me, because of you I only try out. Normally I wouldn’t care much, as anything that I have to queue, they wont enjoy my business.

Moochi (2)

Moochi (3)

Moochi (4)

I wonder how did this brand came about. . .

Moochi (5)

They even have their own drinks.

Moochi (6)

A simple menu that the have and their price is very reasonable.

Moochi (8)

Moochi comes in different sizes and if you are a big eater then MASSIVE  would be your choice. They have 4 flavours to choose from. Original, Green Tea, Pomegranate and Watermelon

Moochi (7)

Right after the order you can choose your toppings. Ranging to about 21 toppings selection.

Moochi (10)

Then pick up a bottle of Pomegranate peach passion white tea @ AUD 4.50. Slightly sourish, and strong hint of passion fruit taste and we find it slightly sweet to our liking. Its good though if they can tone down the sweetness 20% then would have been perfect.

Moochi (11)

Jeng Jeng Jeng, I choose a small cup to go after as we are super stuff right after super heavy dinner. Chose Original with 3 toppings, @ AUD 5.40 with mango, lychee follow by unique flavor that for the first time I have come accross is Watermelon with another 2 topings, oreo and honeydew (if i am not mistaken). Watermelon is a better selection.

Texture of the yogurt is smooth, aromatic and slightly more creamy that I like it. After putting into your mouth, it melts slight faster and upon so many brands that is in Malaysia, this brand definitely stood up.

First time stepping foot into Mandarin Grill is certainly another new level of experience for me, as always the main entrance projects me the impression that they are serving buffet line, neither did I know its actually a contemporary restaurant. Not only that, with chances of being here along with few others are totally slim. Mandarin Oriental is known for its award winning owner and operator, therefore Mandarin Grill is something I am looking up at.

Many of foodies like us we surely heard about Michelin star restaurant, which is a fine dine exclusive restaurant that maintain its quality all year long. There are none in Malaysia. Guess what, now Mandarin Grill is getting an exclusive chef with experience in cooking 2-Michelin star restaurant is the new chef heading the kitchen as Chef de Cuisine is Chef Reto Weber.

MO Bar (18)

Looking at the menu, I instantly lock this down for my mains 12 hours braised pure Angus Beef Short Ribs – morel mushroom with kohlrabi and potato puree @ RM 135

MO Bar (21)

I look down on this slab of meat that I thought I would not be filled and it proves me wrong. Braised to perfection that the meat is soft, tender and moist. I pair it with potato purree and it taste awesome along with a sip of wine. Something that you must not miss if you are here, some people do not prefer it and if you are a fan of Angus steak then should give it a try.

MO Bar (19)

At first I thought this Halibut Saltimbocca  is fish, then looking back at the menu only realize its smoked duck, sage, braised lentils , saffron jus @ RM 148

MO Bar (20)

Another amazing dish is Organic Lamb two ways – Loin, tortellini, celeriac puree, Balinese pepper sauce. Cook medium rare that you can see the blood still oozing out from the meat and sauce added on top is just aromatic. @ RM 165

MO Bar (22)

Many of other diners are aiming for this desert, as those are some regular in here and its a must have according to them. Granny Smith Apple Tart Creme France Ice Cream. It was cook to precision that the crust is slight crispy and apple is very flavourful and you must eat along with ice cream to make it more perfect, yet to me its still too sweet as I myself cant take too sweet item. The rest are just enjoy to the max with this desert.

MO Bar (23)

Although I don really come to Desa Park City, it certainly is one of a nice neighborhood place to chill in. Everything seems so calm and peaceful, with people jogging around, playing tai chi, taking their dogs for a stroll and just feel nice to be here. – Soi Thai Restaurant

[UPdate – NO Longer in Operation] 

Not only that, as Desa Park City also have a little eatery place that smack right in the middle of the field and host quite a number of restaurant. One of the restaurant that I previously went that serve pretty nice food is a Italian restaurant right at the corner. Now, dropping by here again is a new Thai restaurant that open its door since last year October and heard quite good feedback on it.

soi thai (1)

Soi Thai Restaurant its like a hidden gem in this neighborhood that serve nice authentic Thai Food. I got lost when I first look for this restaurant as it always appears in my mind that all restaurant are only on ground floor, as this restaurant is located on the first floor.

soi thai (2)

Soi Thai offer very pleasent dining experience with simple interior and their staff is very helpful

soi thai (3)

soi thai (4)

soi thai (5)

Price wise are very reasonable and there are quite a range to choose from.

soi thai (6)

soi thai (8)

Pandan Leaf and Lemon Grass Drink, Thai Ice Tea,

soi thai (13)

Started off with usual Thai dining with kerabu, Green Papaya Salad with Dried Shrimp and Peanuts. I just love the taste of it, sourish which is good for stomach before heading to main course and its quite spicy with little chili padi being  mix along, and a bit of salty cuttle fish just blend the taste well.

soi thai (12)

Soi Thai Combo

This is a combination of pandan chicken, fish cake, thai wantan and croquette platter.

soi thai (17)

One thing to hunt for in this plate is the Pandan chicken. Well marinated and fried to perfection as the meat is ginger pale yellowish with a bit hard crust on the edge and its soft yet aromatic.

soi thai (9)

We ended up order another Thai Style Otak-otak as it is so good that each of us took 2. Steam to its softness like near eating jelly to my likings, and some prefer it to be harden abit. For me, I am okay with either version.

soi thai (10)

Thai Green Curry Chicken pairs well with rice.

soi thai (11)

Steamed Siakap with Lime and Chili Sauce sourish with lime base and we drank it like soup. Spicy yet its good till my tears nearly drip.

soi thai (14)

Something that you must not miss is their Signature Fire Pot with Seafood Tom Yam (4 to 5 persons). By the smells of it already thrill us to drink in asap with its sourish spicy smell that poke thru our nose is something that we can wait to put our hands on. To our delight, the taste is as good as what we smell. Spicy yet the soup is filled with seafood taste and sourish after taste. Just a perfect pot of Tomyam. – REcommended~

soi thai (15)

This is something worth to recommend Thai Red Curry Roasted Duck mild in curry taste, with duck meat is quite soft.

soi thai (16)

According to my friend, this is a very rare receipi that not many restaurant in Klang Valley able to cook this dish – Choo Chee Deep Fried Fish, is actually one of a signature dish in the restaurant. Deep fried fish shower with mild spicy flavor and skin is crispy with soft meat filling. – REcommended

soi thai (18)

Pineapple Fried Rice

soi thai (19)

Thai Style Kicap prawns

soi thai (20)

One of my favourite dish that I would not miss to try out is Authentic Pad Thai. Turns out to be good as the glass noodle is thin and small which it is suppose to be and fried with ‘wok hei’ covered with omelet. Mix all up is exactly the taste I have in Bangkok.  Just that Malaysia version do not add sugar. Recommended

Certainly will come back again, along if you ask me where to hunt for nice Thai food, this restaurant will falls into one of my recommendation list. 🙂

How many of you do you actually dine or yum cha at local kopitiam especially on local franchise chain? Often that we do not have satisfactory food or drinks in certain outlet. It was not until recently that Carmen insist to bring me here for the main reason they serve pretty good food for a franchise chain and second because her friend operate this outlet. This outlet certainly have my vote in ..

[close down]

Hailam (1)

This shop is located at one of my favourite Pork Ball Noodle Kopitiam (click here) which is directly behind is this Hailam Kopitiam, also facing directly Bangsar Village.

Hailam (2)

A place that you can dine quite cozy with marble tables and wooden chairs, as there are alot of fans in the ceiling that keeps the cool air around.

Hailam (3)

They have pretty wide range of food and drinks and price wise I find it rather cheap compare to another 2 brands. One good thing about this shop as it is a HALAL kopitiam.

Hailam (4)

Hailam (5)

Traditional Hazelnut White Coffee, Ice Roasted Coffee and Hailam Milk Teao

Hailam (7)

Passion Fruit & Dragon Fruit Shake @ RM 7.50

Hailam (8)

Traditional Hailam Tea and Traditional Hailam Roasted Coffee @ RM3.20

I am not really a coffee drinker as most of my friend know, as I drink coffee I have the opposite effect which is getting sleepy. One thing that really love is the coffee here. Certainly beats quite a number of places that the taste of coffee is robust, well blend, strong in aroma and did not go too milky. If you are here, certainly its a recommended drink!

Hailam (9)

A simple Toasted Sliced Bread with Butter & Kaya @ RM2.50 where you think most of us can do it at home, I just do not know what is the trick that it can be toasted out crispy and with one bite, you can see the crumbs dropping off and a simple spread of butter and kaya makes it a simple bites to be wobble down. Must eat it while it is freshly out from the toaster! If you pair this with the hot coffee and  half boil egg it would be the most perfect combination of all!!

Hailam (10)

For the price of RM 7.20 for Chicken Deluxe Sandwich, it is certainly reasonable in price with generous amount of ingredient added in, chunks of chicken and vege with sauce evenly spread makes it nice to eat.

Hailam (11)

Tuna Egg Sandwich @ RM5.20

Hailam (12)

Star of the night is this Hailam Chicken Chop with Original Sauce. We never expect a chicken chop will taste so good and impress us so far at this kind of restaurant chain. It is juicy and tender, as the meat is not dry, sauce is well balance that I just requested for another bowl of sauce to make it gravvyyyy enough for me on the chicken and fries. Recommended!  RM14.20

Hailam (13)

A dish of Mix Fried Mee (Fried Ying Yeong) especially with HALAL status, caught us by surpise that it was fried perfectly with wok hei, that certainly can match with many chinese hawker center area on quality. I just had this again when I was meeting my friend there 2 hours ago. It is satisfied, and my malay friend find it delicious.Recommended! RM7.80

Hailam (14)

I always love to try tomyam fried rice, not many places that can fried this to my likings, either too powdery, or the taste is too strong. Then find that Hailam Tomyam Fried Rice offer in this shop is well balance in taste, with a bit of sourish and spicy that comes to my liking. RM8.80

Hailam (15)

A simple malaysian delicacies which is Nasi Lemak Special with Rendang Ayam, with rice is very fragrant with coconut milk that serve along with thick curry gravy and eat along with the sambal just goes along very well. RM9.60

Hailam (16)

Fried Kuey Teow another dish that surprise us. Fried with enough wok hei, till the koay teow is very fragrant and while smelling it, already makes a lot people hungry. After the first bite into our mouth, we were stun! the taste is very similiar to the ones in Penang, not only that, it was fried without pork lard and we just cannot imagine that if the chef can fried with pork lard, this dish will be a big hit among many people. Recommended!

Hailam (17)

Hailam Fried Mee/ Hailam Mee @ RM8.50

Hailam (18)

Curry Noodle

I know that many franchise chain food are quite disappointing, but when comes to this outlet, I would want to say that their food certainly outstanding compare to other shops and I have went back here a few times since I was brought by Carmen that I must thank her now, even now I know where to bring my Malay friends when they crave for nice chinese  HALAL food.

When you said there is nothing to hunt in Kota Damansara is totally a lie. The F&B outlets are mushrooming like crazy in this area that makes The One Cafe into the list.
